One of the most anticipated movies Chehre is finally out. However, it did not fill up the high expectations the audience had from the film. The film helms a dream cast, but it still didn’t help with the tiresome plot. However, we do understand the character who said “main thak gaya hoon, pak gaya hoon, jaane do mujhe.” Or words to that effect. Analyze the film further with our latest Chehre Movie review.

Storyline: Four friends who are court officials comprising a public prosecutor, defence lawyer, judge and an executioner, regroup at a heritage mansion in an isolated hill station. They play games by reenacting mock trials on stranded strangers who seek refuge in their spooky house. All is fun and games until things get serious.
Chehre Movie Review:
Working at an ad agency in Delhi Sameer Mehra runs into the four gentlemen when he is compelled to spend the night at the house owing to extreme weather. The movie that has the dream cast and a strong story base ruin your expectations.
The veterans sit around and exchange lines that don’t land: Bachchan, who is given a ‘friendly appearance’ in the credits, delivers a thunderous, never-ending speech that touches upon the Nirbhaya case and other heinous crimes against women, which sounds impressive but feels fully extraneous.
Rumy Jafry has some good actors at his disposal but, tragically, the script lets them down. Rhea Chakraborty has a decent role but does little to impress. One cannot blame the makers entirely, as on paper the story might have seemed unconventional at the beginning, but it keeps slipping to being absurd as it progresses.
